Course Overview:

The ever-increasing focus by the Regulators on capital adequacy and the accountability of Senior Management, particularly when things go wrong, emphasises the importance of individuals in senior Management positions having a clear understanding:

  • of what is expected of them as holders of Significant Influence Functions,
  • of how the firm’s financial and regulatory reporting processes ensure compliance with the relevant obligations, and
  • at a level of detail appropriate to understand and challenge the work done by internal resources and/or outsourced service providers, of relevant prudential requirements and capital calculations.

This course is designed to assist Senior Management to embed a compliance ethos in the individual and a strong compliance culture throughout the firm.
